teachings, profanity and violent lyrics and the district will be updating its rules. >> tia: they should. because, i think that is, you know -- a little stereotypical to go in and say all rap music has bad lyrics. you listen to rap. they aren't always cussing in every song. >> laura: i think they were trying to give a vague description and they should have just said what they wanted there. just said. >> tia: no profanity. >> laura: but the thing that's hard is how can you target somethinef you can't be like you can't play music when it has curse words. >> tia: you can censor some of it. a cake controversy in california. a trans gender cake creation is getting a lot of reaction all over social media. you have probably already seen this. the freeport bakery was given a special request. this is out of sacramento, california. and this is what they came up with. then some people took their playful image and turned it into

12:19 pm
so, that's pretty much covers all of the territory in our viewing area. we will be on top of it all again, meteorologist jeff tanchak already here as he typically is this time of day to track storms as they come through. last three hours pretty quiet around here. sun peeking through not a good thing. the more heat you get, the more volatility in the atmosphere. and an atmosphere that's already laden with moisture. it's been deep. you can feel the soupiness as you nearest storms here. this is what i am watching. take a look just west of kalamazoo and south of south haven and you will see what popped up here. this may be the beginnings of what is coming our way through the afternoon. we will be on top of it all as we make our way through. futureview, let's stop things down as we make our way into the afternoon. here's the 5:00 stopdown. watch the flashes of red and orange as we go through the 7:00 hour. so, this is the evening commute.
12:20 pm
and, look. very, very little left over. a random leftover isolated shower. this is going to be a relatively short-lived event. no promises that anything will get to severe limits, but that is a possibility that we want to keep an eye on and you want to know about. that's why we are alerting you to exactly that. on our way through, we will make temperatures climb into the upper 80s to near 90 today. it will feel much, much hotter than that when you couple the heat with the humidity. this, by the way, is shi it's our cleveland 19 weather app and, it's a free download. you can track the radar right along with us. you can customize it to your own neighborhood. it's really a valuable tool. i suggest you download it. scattered showers and storms today. 90ish, give or take a couple. high humidity feeling much, much warmer and that soupiness is going to be triggered by the front that is currently in indiana and is headed our way.
12:21 pm
possible, possible as well there. scattered is key. rain and storms end early tonight as we dip to 68. whole different kind of a day tomorrow . 83 degrees. sun clouds mix. lower humidity levels. look, light northwest winds. that means they will be coming from canada. it's going to feel very, very different tomorrow. so, 90, red-alert day today. friday, we are fine. race for the cure, 85 and sun clouds mix. sun and sunday. 87. at this point i have to mention the slight risk of a shower or a storm on tuesday and monday. and then a more seasonable 82 as we head to wednesday under partly cloudy skies. average high this time of year is 80. if something pops through the course of the afternoon and evening, we will be on top of it all tracking it and letting you know who will get what when, all coming up. again, jeff tanchak's already here. >> laura: talk about looking

12:23 pm
>> that's on the wayne county sheriff's facebook page. little madison just had a large tumor removed from the brain and will now undergo chemo until next may. you can send cards for her to the wayne county justice center. the address is on our website in the seen-on section. >> tia: also sending some prayers her way as well. well one of the highlights of a new school year is watching friday night football but it comes at a risk. good news, though. one northeast ohio hospital has a way to help you tackle concussiongh your hand . that story and more come on cleveland 19 news starting up at 4:30 a.m. >> laura: all right. well, cleveland 19 news at noon, we are going straight to the dogs. i can't wait. we have a viral video that will have dog owners shaking their heads. >> tia: i can't wait to see it. and we are checking in on these cute little puppies transported from the louisiana floods to geauga county. we are asking when they will be up for adoption.

12:27 pm
everybody's going to want one of those puppies. laura and i both have dogs. right? and when they do something they know is wrong, they are ashamed of themselves. they kind of have their heads hanging low just like humans. >> laura: yeah, and that's why this video right here is so funny and it's going viral. from buenos aires, a man posted this video of him confronting his two dogs with a chewed-up insole. he's asking which one did it. during the interrogation his bull cracks. the pit bull tries to behind behind his friend and a presidented plant. there's nowhere to go. my dog's thing is taking out tissues. if you walk by the bathroom, she's like -- you know, even it she didn't do anything. >> jon: saying forgive me, please. >> laura: even if i didn't do it. yes. >> jon: all right. possibility of some severe storms this afternoon. we will track them all as they
